Ex-President R. B. Hayes : We shall always remember our visit to 
Monterey as one of the most agreeable episodes of our lives. We shall 
never forget that lovely hotel among the trees and flowers — and the 
climate : it was a perfect summer's day on the verge of winter. 

General W. T. Sherman: I consider Monterey, with its Hotel del 
Monte, the most delightful place I have ever visited. 

From the Princess Louise to the ^Manager of the Hotel 
del Monte : You have the most; beautiful place and the cleanest and best 
kept hotel that I have ever visited in my travels. fLord Lome also 
expressed himself in about the same terms, and said that he was greatly 
pleased with his visit to Monterey.] 

John W. Mackay : There is nothing in Europe that can at all compare 
with it 

Hon. P. Deuster, of Milwaukee: I consider it incomparable in all 

Governor Fenton, of New York ; I can only picture Monterey and 
its delightful hotel and grounds as a paradise. 

Lawrence Barrett : I have just returned from Paris, cracked up, 
you know, for the excellency of its coffee, but I have never in my life 
tasted such an inviting early breakfast as I had while at the Hotel del 

Paul Oeker, in N. Y. Staats-Zeitung : There is no doubt about 
its superiority over all Italian or Floridian resorts as a sanitarium. 

Correspondent of the Boston Home Journal : The Hotel del 
Monte is the most beautiful hotel I ever saw. I can see one hundred 
acres of lawn and flowers from my open window ; while the air is 
fragrant with the perfume of roses, violets, heliotropes and other flowers. 

A.J. O. in Boston Transcript : My pen fails me here in this entranc- 
ing spot, and I can only hint at its grandeur and beauty. ' 

Hartford Evening Post : It is simply a miracle of beauty. Every- 
thing that refined taste can suggest, or that wealth, aided by nature and 
art, can secure, is here to add to the charms of this delightful spot 

Manchester (N. H.) Mirror : The half had not been told us of this 
famous resort 

Jno. J. Powell, English Traveler: There is no place on the Pacific 
Coast more replete with natural charms than Monterey. The Hotel del 
Monte is one of the most elegant watering-place establishments in the 

Dr. C. B. Currier in N. Y. Medical Times: As a winter resort, it 
is simply incomparable. * * * * Its " Hotel del Monte" 
is not excelled, if equaled, in regard to magnificence, elegance, and 
comfort, by any hotel in Europe or America. 

Correspondent (London) Anglo-American Times: Monterey stands 
at the head of the list, and may be justly termed the " Queen of 
American Wateriug-places. 

James Charlton, G. P. and T. Agent Ch & Alton R. R.: It 
exceeds all praise and my highest expectation. 1 shall never forget the 
beautiful Del Monte, its lovely and tasteful surroundings; the sea drive 
with its invigorating breeze; the odors of the pine grove; the charm of 
the cypress grove, and other glories and attractions of the place. 

N. H. Chittenden, the Traveler: Monterey presents a combination 
of attractions and advantages unequaled by any other seaside resort in 
the world . 

Correspondent (Philadelphia) Medical and Surgical Reporter: 
Of the many Pacific Coast resorts, I consider that Monterey stands at 
the head of the list. 

A. McNally, of Rand, McNally & Co., cf Chicago; I consider the 
Hotel del Monte, at Monterey, the ne plus ultra of all things in its line ; 
while the reasonableness of its charges greatly surprised me. Its 
grounds cast all other like accessories in the shade. 

H. R. Hobart, Editor Chicago Railway Age: It is well called "the 
queen of watering-places. " In beauty of surroundings, elegance of finish 
and appointment and completeness of architectural effect, the Del Monte, 
aa a reBort for health and pleasure, is not equaled on the continent.

[continued from the last number.] 

[The substance of this story thus far presents to the reader a man and 
wife and their daughter, who had set out from Iowa for California during 
the early days of the gold excitement. It gives the pedigree of the 
parents, and relates how they quarreled at the intersection of the Carson 
and Lassen trails, and how they separated at that point upon the 
Humboldt Desert, the husband taking the Lassen trail and the wife and 
daughter the Carson. Each party is then traced, the husband until he 
comes up with a caravan bound for Oregon, in camp at some hot springs 
near the margin of Honey Lake, within view of Lassen's peaks, on the 
evening of the fifth day after the separation. Lassen's peaks are described 
and also the further pilgrimage of Hathaway until he arrives, in company 
with five trappers and hunters, at Surprise Valley, a few days after their 
departure from Honey Lake. Mount Shasta is also described, and the 
country round about, including the Sacramento, Pit and McCloud 
rivers, also Strawberry Valley, Sisson's and the Oregon Division of the 
Central Pacific Railroad. The ascent of Shasta is presented in an enter- 
taining way. Chapter III. then opens, and Mrs. Hathaway and her 
daughter are found in camp at a pretty place on the old Johnson trail, 
on the margin of Lake Tahoe, near the mouth of the Little Truckee 
River. Then follows a description of Lake Tahoe and the majestic 
mountains which lift up their hoary summits thousands of feet above it. 
The enchanting scenery all around, the summer and autumn sunsets, the 
violet heavens, the threads of melody of leaf-hid bird, the rocky glen, 
the pale young moon, the stillness of night, and much other delicious 
detail is entered into and faithfully and vividly delineated, including a 
hailstorm of ravishing beauty. Then follow descriptions of Donner, 
Independence and Webber Lakes, and other smaller bodies which seem 
to be set in the castellated Sierra like gems in a diadem. Chapter IV. 
starts out with"an account of Hathaway's encounter with a bear, in which 
he received injuries. New characters are introduced among which is Hill 
Beechey, a hotel-keeper at a place called Lewiston, Idaho Territory; also 
Lloyd Magruder a successful trader. Hill Beechey has a significant 
dream. A plot is planned to kill and rob Magruder. Hathaway's life 
is also threatened. Magruder and his companions killed. His mur- 
derers-arrested, convicted and executed. Hathaway makes a narrow 
escape. Shortly after the tragic termination of the careers of the murderers 
of Magruder and his friends there sprung up a hostility against Hatha- 
way for the part he had taken during the trial of the aforesaid desper- 
adoes, and he felt forced to leave Lewiston (Idaho) and we next find him, 
two or three years afterwards, a deputy sheiiff of Nevada county, (Cali- 
fornia) and the hero of the day, on the 15th of May, 1866, he having 
accomplished the daring act of killing three stage robbers and receiving 
therefor a reward of three thousand dollars and an appointment on Gov- 
ernor Low's Staff, with the rank of lieutenant-colonel "for meritorious 
service in the field." Chapter VI. opens with a description of the 
commencement of Mrs. Hathaway's trip across the Sierra Nevada 
mountains, and also presents a graphic account of the fate of the 
Donner Party, a tragic episode of the winter of 1846-7, in which, out of 
eighty men, women and children, thirty-seven perished. This chapter 
ends with a description of the progress of the caravan of which Mrs. 
Hathaway and her daughter were members; its arrival at Placerville and 
Sacramento; Mrs. Hathaway's disappointment in not meeting her hus- 
band; her many years of successes thereafter; the marriage of her 
daughter, and the birth of a child of the latter. It also presents a 
graphic description of the life of General Sutter, the grand old pioneer, 
who first landed in California in 1839. Chapter VII. again introduces 
the reader to Hathaway, who had lost his three thousand dollars in a 
mining enterprise in Nevada, and who had drifted back into northern 
California, and afterward attempted to get another stake in Oregon and 

Washington Territory. Like the "Wandering Jew" Hathaway had 
kept on moving, and on the 29th day of July, 1871, he embarked from 
Victoria on the steamer "Fideliter," en route for Alaska in the employ 
of the American Fur Seal Company. The author, who was on the 
same vessel at the time, takes the reader up what is termed the "inside 
route" from Victoria to Sitka, one of the most charming trips by sea 
in the world, and graphically describes the rivers, islands, bays, moun- 
tains, glaciers, Indians, and all other interesting things along this most 
picturesque route.] 


After a fine entertainment and ball given us by General Jeff. C. Davis, 
at which were present a large number of officers and their ladies, we 
bade adieu to Sitka, and, on the 1 ith of August, started for Nutchuck, or 
Fort Constitution, on Prince William Sound, 450 miles away, at which 
place we arrived on the 14th. 

We staid all night at Nutchuck. This island contains 270 Kodiakers 
— a high order of Indians, or a low order of Aleuts — divided into eight 
tribes, each tribe having a chief, who brought out his people and intro- 
duced them one by one, (reminding me of committees calling upon the 
President), to each of whom we gave a stick of candy or a cigar, either 
of which is considered a gift of munificence, and for which we received 
the well-known old God-bless-you, so often and so liberally bestowed by 
the Italian mendicants and the curbstone merchants of New York. 

To this point the Copper River Indians come to trade. These Indians 
are the bravest and most athletic savages in Alaska, and have always 
made successful war upon any and all Indians who have had the temerity 
to penetrate their country, and are only at peace with the tribes at 

On the 14th we left Nutchuck for Lower Kany, 210 miles. Owing to 
a strong head wind]and never ceasing fog, (and that is a peculiarity of 
the climate in this section of the northern waters — that dense fogs pre- 
vail during the prevalence of very strong winds), we did not arrive at 
Lower Kany until the evening of the 17th. This point of land is the 
most southern extremity of Cooks' inlet, and is known as the place 
where the Russians expended half a million of dollars in developing coal 
mines, which proved a failure, as the coal contained less than ten per 
cent, of steam, and would exhaust itself as fast as it could be put under 
a boiler. At this point was wrecked, a short time before, a Government 
transport, with a company of troops on board and a year's supply of 
clothing and provisions. A large amount of lumber and a number of 
wagons, and a lot of mules were also lost. The troops were saved by a 
trading vessel which happened to be cruising off that point, and taken to 
Kodiac. From Lower Kany to Upper Kany it is 80 miles. We left the 
former place upon the morning of the 18th, and arrived at the latter 
point at 3 o'clock in the evening, making the run in seven hours. 

Upper Kany is the most northern post on the waters of the Pacific, 
and is the coldest place in winter and the warmest during summer. The 
Indians here are honest and generous people, and, with a few vegetables 
they raise; salmon, which here are very fine; and game, which abounds 
on the main land of Alaska ; deer, reindeer, grouse and many other 
smaller animals, the people manage to live exceedingly well. It is at 
this point that a number of old miners and explorers had been making 
a great effort to find precious metals, but only very small specimens of 
gold, iron and lead had been discovered. From Upper Kany to Kodiac, 
at which place we arrived on the 20th of August, and the most northern 
and largest of the Aleutian islands, it is about 200 miles. 

Kodiac is the only island, except the small ones contiguous to it, 
(Woody and Afgnock islands), which has any timber or growth of wood 
whatever. All the others, from Kodiac to the Siberian coast, are entirely 
destitute of any vegetation, except grass and such small gardens of pota- 
toes and turnips as the natives plant. Woody island, about two miles 
from Kodiac, or St. Paul harbor, as the town or settlement is called, used 
to furnish most of the ice for the Pacific coast. The ice company of 
San Francisco, at the transfer of Alaska to the United States, purchased 
the ice houses and other buildings, and all the paraphernalia for the pros- 
ecution of the ice business, pre-empted Wood's island by building a fence 
around it, and also all the ice ponds upon Afgnock island adjoining. 
Formerly the Russians collected the ice and sold it to the ice company 
at so much per ton delivered on board their vessels. The Russians never 



allowed outside parties to have any control of their people; or, in other 
words, they owned and controlled every interest in the country. The 
codfish arc so abundant at Kodiac that every day in the year they are 
caught, which is the case in no other part of the world. The natives go 
fishing every morning for the day's supply as regularly as a farmer goes 
to his pork or beef barrel. At Kodiac there were two companies of 
troops, the company which was wrecked at Kany and the company in- 
tended to be stationed thereon, all under the command of Colonel Tid- 
ball. The troops, the ice company, and the numerous traders and army 
followers, which had centered here, made it quite a lively place. The 
weather is about the same as at Sitka, although at times in the summer 
the sun shines very hot, and not unfrequently the natives could be seen 
carrying umbrellas to protect them from the excessive heat. 

Going south from Kodiac the first harbor is Unga. On the lower end 
of the island of Unga, the largest of the Schoomagin group, are tin 
codfish banks of Alaska. I counted as many as thirty vessels at anchor 
and their crews fishing over the guards for codfish, no trouble being experi- 
enced in obtaining a schooner full in a very few days. While we were here 
one vessel took 180,000 cod in six days. The weather is so damp, how- 
ever, that the fish are salted and taken to California to be dried. Unga, 
which is 300 miles from Kodiac, has about 150 Aleuts, who have made 
themselves comfortable by hunting sea otter. Their houses are adobe, 
and generally dirty at this place. There is quite a handsome church 
here, under the charge of a native Aleut, who reads the Creek service 
Sundays and holy days. Here we obtained a good supply of hens' eggs 
and as many gulls' eggs as we wished. The number of gulls on the 
rocks at the entrance to th^ harbor is astonishing, and beyond all cab il- 
lation. The eggs taste good to those who have a happy imagination or 
who are very hungry. The water is considered the best in the country, 
retaining its freshness a long time at sea. At the upper end of this 
island the Russians made another failure in their attempt to develop the 
coal interests. Although the coal is of a better quality than at Kany. 
the quantity would not justify an attempt to get a supply. Just north of 
the Schoomagin island is the island of Okarmook, the penal reservation of 
the country under the Russians. Aleuts, Indians, and cross breeds were 
sent there for punishment. Some forty were left there by the Russians. 
and existed by killing rats or a species of ground squirrel, the skin of 
which they manufactured into garments, which were exchanged for the 
necessaries of life by traders. These garments were in turn sold to the 
Indians of the main land and colder regions. 

Mount St. Elias, said to be 16,000 feet in height, may be seen in all 
its magnificent proportions from the Schoomagin islands, and also Mount 
Chiginagark, with an altitude of 17,000 feet. Upon a clear morning 
may be observed columns of blue smoke issuing from the tops of these 
mountains, which may be seen plainly two hundred miles away, so clear 
and ultra-marine is the atmosphere. 

The Indians hereabouts are great tea-drinkers. Their mode of sweet- 
ening the beverage is to place the sugar on the tongue and suck the drink 
through their teeth. On special occasions they drink beer manufactured 
from roots and brown sugar. Their meats and vegetables are cooked in 
whale or seal oil, the latter constituting the butter for their bread. In 
conversation with them you address the chief, who, in turn, addresses 
his tribe, who alike signify their agreeableness or disapprobation by a 

From Unga to Ounalaska it is 300 miles, entering the Behring sea 
through Acutan pass, the harbor being on Behring sea side, and is con- 
sidered the best in Alaska, and has for a long time been visited by the 
Arctic whalers, as a watering place. The settlement, situated on a pen- 
insula between a beautiful mountain stream and the ocean, which is 
nearly of horse-shoe shape, has a decidedly romantic appearance. Here 
the natives' houses are adobes, but are clean, and have an air of comfort 
not to be found at any other place. As at Unga and all of the Aleutian 
islands, the people live by hunting sea otter, the islands furnishing no 
other fur except a few inferior foxes. Horned cattle and sheep thrive on 
these islands, the priest at Ounalaska being the proprieter of about twelve 
head of cattle, as fat and as sleek as any I had ever seen in Southern 
California. There is a cave near the village, where we found skulls of 
enormous size in a perfect state of preservation, with teeth in both jaws. 
The skulls were very thick and strong, having no apparent thin spot, but 
a solid bone; even the nose was bone, showing that the place had heen 
inhabited by a different and larger race than that of the present day. 
The canoes, or boats, called bidarkars, are all made of the skin of seal, 
are very light, and from twelve to twenty-five feet long, and from eigh- 
teen to thirty inches wide, coming to a point at both ends, with from 
one to three hatches or holes, into which the native sticks his legs and 
sits on the bottom, and with his water-proof garment, made from the 
membrane of the seal, which is very light, weighing less than two ounces, 
completely covering him, except his face and hands, and tied around 
the top of the hatch, he goes through waxes and surf, and sits in the rain 
all day, and comes out dry. From six to seventy-five of these bidarkars, 
manned with three men each, form a sea otter hunting party; these par- 
ties, made up from the most able-bodied of the males, start out in the 
spring with provisions, etc., for a three months' hunt. When a party is 

ready to start, the priest, if any, if not, the person who can read church 
service, and acting as priest, goes down to the water, blesses it and 
sprinkles each hunter with it by dipping a brush into the ocean, and 
shaking it over him. The people subsequently join in prayer; then a 
collation, such as they can afford, is served, then dancing and kissing 
takes place, and amid vociferations of joy anil grief the party get off for 
their three months' hunt. All of the other labor is performed by the 
women, as in other Indian countries. 

From Ounalaska to the Seal islands, Soo miles from Kodiac, and 
where we arrived on the 27th, it is some 235 miles. These small islands, 
known as the Pribolor group, hundreds of miles away from any other 
land, and almost always enveloped in a dense fog, are the favorite resort 
of the fur seal. Having been driven by the ruthless hunter from all other 
islands in the known world, they sought refuge here and had found pro- 
tection; — first from the Russian Government, and, subsequently, from 
our own. 

Long before reaching the islands, and sometimes hours before seeing 
them, one gets the stench and hears the fearful roaring of millions of 
ponderous and clumsy, yet sagacious animal -. 

St. Paul, the principal and most important of these islands, is small 
and irregularly-shaped, and is about sixteen miles long, and live miles 
wide, running lengthwise nearly east and west. The seals haul up only on 
the southern side, and at difficult points, where the shore is bold and rocky. 
And, although they sometimes haul up in millions, they never occupy 
more than forty or fifty acres of land. The peculiar habits of this ani- 
mal were most minutely and admirably described by Captain Charles 
Bryant in a report to the Secretary of the Treasury some years ago. 
Captain Bryant spent most of the summer of 1869 on St. Paul island, 
and, according to his instructions, devoted his entire time to the study of 
the seal. 

The seals had inhabited these islands, and had been captured for their 
furs by theRussian Fur Company for seventy years; at one time by their 
eagerness they nearly exterminated them, but by careful management for 
the last thirty yearsof their operations they secured annnally a large num- 
ber without detriment to the supply. These animals have come regularly 
for a great many years. One old fellow, peculiarly marked, has been 
known to locate on the same rock for twenty years. About the 1st of 
May a reconnoitering party, consisting of a few old males, may be seen 
examining the shore; if all is right they disappear for a few days, and 
then return, accompanied by a few hundreds of full-grown animals; these 
at once haul upon the rocks and locate for the season. The full-grown 
animals continue to arrive until hundreds of thousands can be seen, and 
are followed by the four and five-year old males, who are more active, 
and spend much of their time in the water. This size is followed by the 
younger males, one, two and three years old, which come on land and 
are guarded over by the old males, who never fail to give warning on 
the approach of danger, at which the young splash into the sea. The 
full-grown seal weighs about half a ton, and from that size, graduated 
down to the two-year old, which averages about 150 or 200 pounds. 
About the first of June the females arrive; these immediately go on land 
and have their young, and are seized upon by the old males, who huddle 
them together as fast as secured, some old fellows, Mormon-like, having 
as many as hundreds of wives. The mothers nurse their young every two 
or three days, until just before their departure for the winter, when they 
coax them into the water and teach them to swim. The mode of driving 
or getting the animals up from the beach, and separating the two and 
three-year old (or desirable size for their furs) from the others, is the most 
frightful and animated scene I have ever witnessed. A half a dozen or 
more natives, each armed with a seven-foot club, go to the leeward, crawl 
along the water's edge between the water and the seal, until they have 
cut off as many as they can drive, then raise up, and in the same manner 
as urging forward hogs, drive and fall back, and dodge about, knocking 
down by a skillful blow, which stuns but does not injure permanently, 
the old bulls, until the little ones are away from the rookeries, when one 
man and a boy or two ran drive thousands. They are driven very slowly, 
from a half to two miles an hour, to the salt houses, where they are al- 
lowed to rest and cool off before being killed, which is done by huddling 
together fifty or a hundred, and running around them until their hind 
flippers are tangled together, so they cann< I spring at the man when he 
reaches over and knocks the desirable ones on the nose a very slight blow; 
if on the end of the nose, killing the animal instantly. Usually, a 
one-fifth of the number driven up are killed, and the balance allowed to 
return to the water. The skins are then taken off and salted ; the women 
ami children cut the fat from the carcass, and throw it into vats for the 
futur-j manufacture of oil. If the seals are too frequently driven from 
the same rookery, they become alarmed and hunt for a more quiet rest- 
ing-place. Conflicting interests upon these few acres would keep them 
antly agitated, and soon frighten them from the islands and bom 
our waters. The natives are more jealous of the manner of killing than 
of the number killed. These people were born on the islands, and but 
few of them have been beyond their limits, and consider the islands their 
■homes, and sealing, which they alone understand, as their lawful busi- 
ness. The animal leaves in the fall, the female and pups going first; 



then the two and three-year-old, then the four and five-year-old, and 
last, the old bulls, who have been from three to five months on land with- 
out eating anything whatever during that time; in fact, it is not known 
that any of the seals eat during their stay in these waters. I have seen 
thousands of stomachs opened, and have been unable to discover any 
appearance of food except a glutinous substance. Some seven miles from 
the Seal islands is a very small island where walrus or sea elephant haul 
up from the sea; they are not numerous, however, and have not been dis- 
turbed for many years, except, occasionally, one or two by adventurers. 
We killed two, and in each of their stomachs found at least two bushels of 
clams. These animals have been found along the coast, on the mainland 
at and near Bristol bay, where they are killed for their tusks and oil. 

From St. Paul island to Norton sound is about eight hundred miles. 
St. Michael's station is on the main land; here it is very cold and dreary 
at all times, and it is nearly all daytime during the summer and contin- 
ual night through the winter. The natives at St. Michael's are Esqui- 
maux Indians, using dogs and reindeer to draw their sledges, and dress 
mostly in furs. From this point we passed up through Behring straits, 
and could plainly see the Asiatic coast. The highest point we reached 
was Kotzebue's sound, where we found nothing of interest; the country 
is almost a dead level, and has a marshy appearance as far as the eye 
could reach. From here we proceeded along down the coast to Bristol 
bay and Naschaka river, where the salmon are considered to be the best 
in the world, but not as abundant as at many other places in and about 
Cook's inlet. At Bristol bay the natives are very ingenious, carving from 
walrus ivory the most beautiful descriptions of cups, spoons, rules, rings, 
images, thimbles, and various toys. From here we proceeded again to 
Ounalaska, met with a hearty welcome from the natives, got provisions 
and a supply of fresh water, and sailed for San Francisco, the whole ex- 
cursion lasting about three months. We met General Thomas and staff 
at Kodiacon our return, and Mr. Seward and party at Sitka. 

During this tri p I took great pains to inquire — of remaining Russian 
officials, and others, " native and to the manner born "—into the nature 
of the fur seal; and discovered, beyond all doubts, that a check, such as 
is placed upon its capture by a company, bound by Governmental stipu- 
lations such as is the Alaska Fur Seal Company, is the only safeguard 
against its utter extermination or permanent flight. As it is, there is no 
diminution of the animals; the market is perfectly supplied, and our Gov- 
ernment receives a handsome revenue annually from an agency that hon- 
orably pursues its work according to the terms and condition of its con- 
tract and agreement. 

And, to conclude the chapter, I must inform the reader that "Old 
Hathaway," as Andrew was novy generally called, remained in Alaska 
as an employee of the Fur Company for many years.

The following notice may prove of value to tourists and strangers 
traveling in California: 

Philip A. Roach, administrator of the estate of Thomas H. Blythe, 
to-day filed with Judge Coffey, for future reference, the following 

"On Saturday, Feb. 25, 1888, at 2:30 p. m., the remains of Thomas 
H. Blythe, who died in this city April 4th, 1883, were taken from the 
receiving vault in Masonic Cemetery and placed in the lot of ground 
belonging to the estate in said cemetery. 

" On opening the casket the body was found to be in a fine state of 
preservation, and was recognized by several persons present as being 
that of Thomas H. Blythe. 

"The attorneys of the various claimants were notified to be present, 
but only the following appeared: J. W. Holladay, G. W. Towle, J. W. 
Nolin and A. R. Colton. There were also present M. S. Jeffers and 
L. H. Varney, old friends of the deceased; also Florence Blythe with 
her mother and grandparents, Alice Dickason and William Savage, 
claimants; also William H. Porter, embalmer of the body in 1883. 
The vault was closed with three heavy granite slabs laid in cement by 
the contractor, William Mathews." 

Mr. Wm. H. Porter, embalmer, can be found at 116 Eddy street, 
San Francisco. Telegraph orders receive prompt attention. 

No tourist ever leaves San Francisco without visiting Taber's famous 
Photograph Gallery, No. 8 Montgomery street. The reputation of this 
establishment is known all over the world. The exquisite work it turns 
out has been admired in almost every clime nature has produced. It is 
admitted that for accuracy, artistic posing of the subject, and elaborate 
finish, these photographs have no equal. An album of Taber's views of 
Pacific Coast scenery and objects of interest, interspersed with pictures of 
the eminent men and women who have been photographed at this great 
gallery, would constitute one of the most interesting books which could 
be placed on a reception parlor table to amuse the guests. Those who 
wish to obtain satisfactory photographs should go to Taber. 

Just as congenial as when you heard from me last. Madame and 
balance of family all well and generally "kicking." There has never 
been such a beautiful summer at Cypress Point, and there has never 
been so many people on the road. I was up at Pacific Grove during 
the Chautauqua, and was called upon to recite a poem, and wrote and 
delivered the following: 

"Now I lay me down to sleep, 

I pray the Lord my soul to keep; 

II I should die before I wake, 

I pray the Lord my soul to take." 

Through all the gathering mists of age, 

One scene and season lingers yet — 
The first enstamped on memory's page — 

The last I ever can forget; 
'Twas when the orb of day declined, 

Beneath the many-colored west, 
I'd seek my mother's knee, and find 

Upon her bosom perfect rest; 
And when the stars began to shine 

From out the ether, blue ami deep. 
Repeat the prayer whose opening line 

Was, "Now I lay me down to sleep." 

Oh! childhood hours — how calm, how bright; 

How like a dream they passed away! 
That mother sank to sleep one night 

And woke in everlasting day! 
Then manhood, with its perils, came — 

Its high-wrought hopes, its vague desires; 
Ambition's fervid, quenchless flame, 

And passion's baleful furnace tires; 
But oft the thought had power to sway, 

Amid temptations fierce and deep — 
If thus I sin, how can I say, 

"I pray the Lord my soul to keep." 

Around us flit, on silent wing, 

The viewless messengers of death; 
Where health is now, an hour may bring 

The burning brow and fevered breath; 
Alas! how many sparkling eyes 

That close to-night on scenes of mirth 
Before another morn shall rise 

Shall look their last on things of earth! 
I know, ere morning dawns for me, 

The silver cord of life may break; 
Oh! Father, take me home to Thee 
"If I should die before I wake." 

For "earth to earth and dust to dust " 

Must soon be chanted o'er our sod ; 
And for the rest, we can but trust 

The ever-living Father, God ! 
Oh ! welcome, faith ! with what delight 

We near the river deep and wide, 
When friends we love, with forms of light, 

Are waiting on the other side ! 
When life's low tide is ebbing fast, 

And sense and thought their throne forsake, 
Be, then, by earliest prayer my last, 
" I pray the Lord my soul to take." 

When you were a gentle youth, dear Wave, did you ever go to school 
to a crazy schoolmaster? No? Well, I did, then. It was said of him, 
that he had been in love with a girl in Ingeeana, and, oh! what a divine 
creature she was, to be sure. She used to scrub her mother's kitchen 
floor so much that one day she fell through into the cellar. I may as 
well remark, right here, that this muscular Madonna had a sister. Yes, 
sir ; she had a sister ; and when it became necessary to tell one any- 
thing, it was also necessary to tell the other. Cause, why ? They 
were so much alike, they could not be told apart. Well, one of these 
sisters — the scrub(ber) before mentioned — threw off on the pedagogue 
above alluded to, and he got cracked, and came to Cypress Point many 
years ago to teach the young idea how to shoot — beans and spitballs. 
He used to get awfully mad with us roosters, and when he wished to 
visit us with condign punishment, he would make us sit with the girls. 
Oh, dear me, how often Peanuts Blair (he's in jail, now, for bigamy) 
used to catch the condign. I can hear that old crazy cuss (he's dead 
now) go for Peanuts: 

Old teacher Brown brought his ferule down; 
His face was angry and red; 
" Peanuts Blair ! go sit you there 
Among the girls ! " he said. 

So Peanuts Blair, with n mortified air, 

And his head hung down on his breast, 
Went right away, and sat all day 

Willi the girl that he loved best. 

I notice by late eastern papers that a Methodist conference in Brook- 
lyn has declared against tobacco. Now, sir, I have always been a 
Methodist. I have always been one of the good old psalm singing, amen, 



Methodists; and, somehow or other, I've never lost my grip on the old 

school. But when they tell me I must quit tobacco me, an old man, 

with an old homespun woman that I'm proud of, and three likely boys 
and a stand off of as many tarnation good-looking girls— then I'm in for 
open rebellion. I'd as leave do without the old woman as without my 
tobacco. Tobacco! God bless the plant! It is the mainstay if not the 
sheet anchor of many a brooding spirit. How many of us, indeed, have 
not experienced occasions when our only "solace " bore the imprint of a 
Lorillard or an Anderson. At many a camp-meeting the pipe of peace 
has driven away the gloomy thought of a more dismal future, and the 
saliva-producing cud of fine cut has time and again relieved the monoto- 
nous chewing of the cud of misery. For seventy-three years my life has 
been spared, by the God of Abraham and Isaac, and also of Jacob and — 
Tobacco. Every morning, when I thank the beneficent Creator for all 
of his good works, I devote a few minutes in thanksgiving for the seasons, 
for the rain, (even if there is a drouth,) and for the divine origin and unin- 
terrupted perpetuation of that glorious plant — Tobacco. In the preser- 
vation of my teeth, it has been a means of grace. I once quit it (when 
I was courting the old woman) and I lost two charming incisors and a 
stupendous molar. Then I (after capturing the old woman) resumed 
the delectable process of mastication in the direction of the weed. 
Those who are opposed to tobacco may estchew it- — for my part I choose 
to chew. 

I have incidentally spoken of my three daughters. They are con- 
sidered pretty good looking, arc healthy, and not gifted) like young city 
girls, with too much gab. One of your Pacific Grove gentlemen is a 
little spoony on the youngest, who is a school teacher of sweet sixteen 
(multiplied by two,) and is a great favorite at the Point. He often calls 
at my house. Indeed it was only — 

The other night he came to see 

The prettiest girl in town : 
Iler eyes are blue, ami smiling, too, 
Iler hair is curly brown. 

[I watched the performances of that young grocery clerk for some time, 
and particularly when he] 

Took her pretty little hand 

In his own. to draw her near; 
When, with a pout, she stammered out, 
"Oh ! don't ! my father's queer." 

[That youth squeezed and manipulated until I began to get alarmed. 

At last he rose to bid 

" How fast," he said, " the moments glide, 
When some =weet overskirt of blue 
[s seated at your side. " 

[Then he fooled around the door for nearly an hour. And] 

Then the rascal begged 2. hiss, 
His lonely way to cheer; 
"Oh ! no ! It would not do," she said, 
"You know the old man's q 

[I was just on the point of acting indiscreetly, when, of course,] 

The rascal stole the tempting prize, 

As honey steals the bee; 
Ah ! sweet as early Sowers are lips 

Of maids as fair as she. 

[Then the artful (or artless) little beauty — I shall never forget it — ] 

Blushed and sighed, then murmured low, 

So that I scarce could hear: 
" You'd better put that back again; 

Because — my daddy's queer." 

My dear Wave: One of my boys attends school at Pacific Grove, 
and I understand he does not seem very encouraging to the pretty school 
ma'am at that place, who, after taking a good deal of pains with him in 
geography, asked him what a " straight " was, and heard him answer 
that a "straight beat two pairs." I can assure you upon the honor of a 
sheep herder, that I — well, that youth will hear from his father anon, 
and so will the Wave.

Hotel Del Monte, July 7. — The week was a memorable one at Del 
Monte. Every night brought its dance, and every afternoon its enter- 
tainment. There is now every prospect of July being much gayer, and 
of August being still more so, when large contingents from New York 
arrive. The past week was indeed full of gayety — tennis, private suppers 
and dinners, musicals, four-in-hand drives, picnics, riding and bowling 

For a brief space Del Monte has been itself again, and blushing buds, 
delighted dowagers and merry matrons have participated in entertain- 
ments which realized the dreams of many. 

the tennis contest. 

The first tennis tournament for the championship of the Pacific coast 
took place on the courts of the Hotel del Monte. The contest was given 
under the auspices of the California Lawn Tennis Club. Valuable prizes 
to reward the victors were offered by the club, the Hotel del Monte and 
F. M. L. Peters. 

There were fourteen entries for the singles and seven for the doubles. 
The umpires were M. S. Wilson, ex-President of the California Club, 
Dell Linderman, Walter McGavin and Mr. McPherson. There was 
little doubt expressed from the first that W. H. Taylor would gain the 
single and McGavin and Tobin the double championship, but two young 
men from San Luis Obispo came, like the great Twin Brethren to the 
battle of Lake Regillus, and for a time seemed as if they would carry 
away everything before them. But Kilgariff and Hoffman were too much 
for the San Luis Obispo champions, and the latter were in turn van- 
quished by the San Francisco team. 

They are talking of a tournament at San Rafael during the season, 
which is just now opening there, and it would add greatly to the attrac- 
tions of that much-favored spot. 

The attendance throughout was most satisfactory, and the play all 
through was watched with much interest. The fine rallies, good returns 
and neat placing of the ball were generously and judiciously applauded. 

The best match by all odds during the day was played by G. Vernon 
Gray and J. M. Kilgariff. Gray has the best service and is generally 
very graceful and active. He also plays very strongly from the rear 

Kilgariff's service is quite quick, and he returns the ball with the 
greatest speed, and when near the net did his most effective playing. 

The greatest interest was in the doubles between Walter McGavin and 
Joe Tobin against Taylor and Yates. Sometimes it would seem almost 
impossible for a difficult "smash " to be returned, but it would be done, 
to the surprise, as well as the delight, of all. 

Taylor and Yates were the favorites with the betters, although it was 
expected that the match would be close, but McGavin and Tobin out- 
did themselves, their work being phenomenal. 

The prizes were presented to the winners immediately after the tourna- 
ment was ended. 

Terpsichore's devotees. 

The usual ball took place in the evening, and was simply a repetition of 
that of June 16th, save that the dresses were much richer, and the 
value of the diamonds worn that night would almost take away your 
breath should you hear it. Many of the dresses were made especially 
for the occasion. 

Among those present were Mrs. Lloyd Levis, Mrs. W. H. Howard, 
Mrs. W. F. Goad, Mrs. John H. Maynard, Mrs. J. H. Pierce, Mrs.

Fashion has stamped her approval on bathing at Monterey, which had 
been given over to the town's people, Pacific Grove folks and the ex- 
cursionist, for so long, and now it is the thing to go down in the forenoon 
and dip, if only for form's sake. The fashionable girls are beginning to 
drive down to the sands and hold little receptions to the men they know 
in the water, or looking on from the beach. 

Anglers are numerous here in the summer season. They go to the rocks 
at no great distance from the town with a rod, 600 feet of silk line and 
colossal patience. Suspecting the presence of a striped bass in the offing, 
they cast their bait upon the waters and do not haul it in until after many 
days, figuratively speaking, the rocks being abetter place for fishing than 
they are for fish. At times, however, the angler is rewarded. The hero 
of the day is a former San Franciscan, now a resident of New York, who 
has caught not only a fish but a leviathan. It was a leviathan bass which, 
by the aid of a nickel, was found to weigh forty-two pounds. Those 
scales weigh everything. When the fish took the bait and started for 
Santa Cruz the angler's eyes fairly bulged. By the song of the reel and 
the strong twitches of the silk he felt certain that he had caught either 
an Atlantic cable or a submarine boat. The fish got winded at last, and 
the man hauled in. \ox an hour and a half he labored with great skill. 
Under a much greater strain than his line, he finally got the 42-pounder 
up to the rocks and a friend gaffed the monster. Dropping his rod, the 
captor plunged down the rocks, seized the fish in his arms and climbed 
back to the summit with his prize, feeling very much as Balboa did 
when he discovered the Pacific.

Hotel del Monte, July 14. — The delightful weather of the last 
week has been an important factor in keeping the unusually large num- 
ber of guests now here. 

The place became more lively during the past week, and in addition 
to the regular hops, out-of-door concerts, etc., there was a numerously 
attended picnic given by several prominent gentlemen, on Saturday last, 
at the new picnic grove, near Pebble Beach. Among them YV. H. 
Howard, E. A. Bruguiere, Louis B. Parrott and Horace L. Hill. 

Soon after breakfast the large six-in-hand and several four-in-hand 
coaches and the private teams of Messrs. Howard, Hill, Parrott and 
Bruguiere drove up to the Del Monte, and were soon filled with a 
joyous company. 


Upon arriving at the picnic grounds they found that luncheon had 
already been prepared and was greatly enjoyed by the sixty guests. 
Champagne flowed like water and Ballenberg's orchestra discoursed 
delightful music the entire afternoon. 

Of course the amateur photographer was present in the persons of 
Messrs. Wilson and Hooker. The company was artistically grouped 
among the rocks and bushes, and an excellent picture was taken. 
Before returning the party repaired to the bathing-house, and many 
refreshed themselves with a swim to the raft, which proved a pleasant 
finale to a delightful day. 


A few days later Charles Crocker gave a picnic to all the children 
staying at the hotel. Mrs. Lucy Arnold and Mrs. Joe Crockett kindly 
consented to take part, and so a good time for the little ones was insured. 

Among those who attended the first picnic were W. H. and Mrs. 
Howard, Mrs. Lucy L. Arnold, Charles Crocker, W. F. and Mrs. 
Goad, Miss Jennie Cheesman, Louis B. and Mrs. Parrott, Miss Nellie 
McDowell, Miss Ella Goad, Miss Florence Pierce, Miss Ailene Ivers, 



E. A. and Mrs. Brugiere, Miss Lucy Upton, Miss Edith Taylor, Miss 
Annie Pierce, Miss Leslie Nan Vess, Miss Minnie Carroll, Miss Dora 
Boardman, Horace and Mrs. Hill, Miss Grace Pierce, Miss Clara 
Taylor, Miss Adelaide Upson, Mrs. W. P. Casey, J. B. and Mrs. Crockett, 
Judge Ogden Hoffman, C. O. Alexander, Cutler Paige, Neville Castle, 
Horace Vachell, Captain J. W. Dillenback, Perry P. Eyre, J. B. 
Casserly, M. S. Wilson, judge Ward McAllister, Arthur Vachell, 
Osgood Hooker, J. H. Stuart, Frank Carolan, Miss A. R. Shinn, Mrs. 
Milton S. Latham. 


Card-playing is greatly in vogue, and any number of clubs are- 
formed to enjoy a good game of whist or euchre. Of course it is a 
question of skill between the contestants, as money is never staked upon 
the game in the ladies' cardroom. 


There was the usual hop in the ballroom last night. The ballroom 
was partially filled with visitors representing the highest social class in 
San Francisco. The women, in beauty and intelligence, compared 
favorably with those of any other country, though some of the men were 
small of stature, with a preceptible pre-disposition to an early wig. 

At the commencement a beautiful waltz echoed for a long time 
across the cool verandas before a single couple arose. Then two 
dancers, with grave decorum, ventured. As they circled about the 
shinning floor another couple arose and then another. But about it all 
there was the grave hesitancy of young people rising at a revival meeting. 
After a time there were as many as five couples gracefully moving about 
the room. Ballenberg and his orchestra are at their best, but I would 
suggest that they play other than dance music at the morning and after- 
noon concerts, and that the ballroom should be properly ventilated. 


Among those who are seen at the hops are: C. O. Alexander, Mrs. 
Lucy L. Arnold, Rev. and Mrs. James Adams, E. A. and Mrs. Brugiere, 
Mrs. Gordon Blanding, Mrs. Thomas Breeze, George C. and Mrs. 
Boardman, Miss Lora Boardman, W. F. Brown, Miss Jessie Bowie, 
the Misses Breeze, Judge H. D. Brown, W. P. and Mrs. Casey, James 
and Mrs. Carolan, Miss Evelyn Carolan, the Misses Carolan, Herbert

Santa Cruz, July 7. — The announcement that Mrs. E. J. Swift 
would give the initial hop at the Pope House on last Tuesday evening 
caused quite a flurry of excitement in society circles, and although the 
time intervening between the announcement and party was brief, it gave 
all time sufficient to prepare for the social event. The spacious dancing- 
hall at the Pope was lavishly decorated for the occasion, and at 9 o'clock, 
when the grand march took place, a gathering of wealth, beauty and re- 
finement was seen which is rarely concentrated at a party in Santa Cruz. 
F>ancing was kept up until a late hour. A magnificent lunch was spread 
for the guests, and when the medley was played by the musicians regrets 
were expressed that the affair was over, and wishes entertained foranear 
repetition of a like enjoyable affair. The dresses of many of the ladies 
were elegant, and among which might be noted the following: 

Mrs. E. J. Swift was charmingly attired in white surah satin, trimmed 
with Nile green brocade a la duchesse; diamond ornaments.

silk a la Grecque.

Dandy Jim. 


[From the London Daily A T e7vs~] 

A dissertation on the French youth of the day appears in a Paris 
paper, and is in great part a reproach. There are no more young men, 
laments the writer. These grave and solemn beings who take life so 
seriously and find so little joy in their youth cannot be called young 
men. They talk of deputations when they should be thinking about 
balls and pretty partners. Instead of inditing a sonnet to his mistress's 
eyebrow, the modern young man contributes a paper to a political 
journal in which he elucidates the councils of Europe and gives his 
views upon them. He never descends to the frivolity of dancing. He 
marries money, and cares little whether the lady that goes with it be 
pretty or plain, young or old. He is insensible to all but the very 
practical issues of life. His heart beats in his brain and leaves his bosom 
cold. Can he be called young? There is nothing of youth about him 
but the superficial appearance of it. Another type of the unyouthful 
young man is he who dresses like an English groom, talks stables and 
racing, pigeon shooting and discusses the repertory of the music hall. 
His little soul begins with his tailor and ends in his cane. He is a heavy 
nullity, impervious to soft impressions and almost as devoid of brain as 
he is of heart. This is the gilded youth of France as sketched by a 
Frenchman. Have we nothing in England to match either type ? 

The Spitzfers had risen in the world, or at least their bank account 
had, and they were invited, or their money was, to a fine dinner party 
given by one of the old families, and they accepted. The first thing 
served was bouillon in small cups, and old Spitzfers involuntarily 
reached for the sugar, put in his four lumps, and lifted it to his lips, 
spoon and all. "Oh, Mary!" he said, to his wife, "what horrible 
tea; maybe milk will improve it, it is just there; to your left; pass it." 
She faints and the company are seized with coughing spells. 


Polite, but absent-minded bather (to friend up to his neck in water) 
— "Oh Jones, very glad to see you. Won't you have a seat?" Jones 
declined the invitation. 

The following is a true copy of a sign upon an academy for teach- 
ing in one of the Western States — "Freeman and Huggs, School 
Teachers. Freeman teaches the boys and Huggs the girls." 

It was a Boston girl at Del Monte who rendered the old saying of 
the pot calling the kettle black, as follows: — "Until the soot is wiped 
from all hollow ironware it will be more prudent for each variety to 
preserve a dignified silence as to relative complexions." 

The season is at its height when a man, who finds a twelve-room 
house and a half-acre of ground too small for him at home, will live 
with his family in a three-room shanty, surrounded by 1,000 feet of 
glaring sand and call it happiness. 

Miss Maude de Croesus — "Now, tell me candidly, Major, have I 
any faults ?" Major Batterby Sidestroke (impressively) — "Only one, 
dear Miss Maude — you are rich !" [And then she accepted him on the 
spot, don't you know ?] 

Over-heard in the park. — Fair Equestrienne — "You seem to know 
a great deal about married life, sir. Are you married?" Cubleigh 
(twirling his moustache) — "Well — aw, naw — nawt exactly, y' knaw, but 
— a — my father is." 

She said it was a very bright idea. He said he knew a brighter one; 
and when she asked him what it was, he answered: "Your eye, dear." 
There was silence for a moment; then she laid her head upon the rim of 
his ear and wept. 

" No," snappishly said the summer boarding-house keeper to Mrs. 
Culture, of Boston, who was inquiring as to the healthfulness of the 
locality, " no, we ain't got no typhoid germs, and there hain't been no 
calls for 'em either. Folks is wanting everything nowadays, and ain't 
satisfied with clean beds and plenty of what's good to eat." 

Miss Dudley — "There is no object so beautiful to me as a con- 
scientious young man. I watch him as I do a star in heaven." 
Miss Admirer — an old maid — "That's my view, exactly; in fact, I think 
there is nothing so beautiful as a young man, even if he isn't 

"Yes," said Mrs. De Hobson, "Clara had an excellent opportunity 
to visit Europe last year in the company of some friends; but I couldn't 
bear the idea of having the ocean between us." "It seems a pity, Mrs. 
Hobson," responded the caller; "an European trip does give such a 
tone to a society young lady." "I know it does. To those moving in 
the high circles that we do it is almost a necessity. I suppose," con- 
cluded Mrs. De Hobson, half regretfully, "that I should have let her 

"I have made my will, dear," the sick man said to his wife, "and 
you will inherit everything unconditionally. But I have one last 
request to make, and that is that you do not marry again for two years." 
"How much is the property worth, John? " inquired the weeping lady. 
"About two thousand dollars." ''Well, John," she said, " the thought 
that you may possibly die almost breaks my heart, but your last request 
shall be respected. I think I can accomplish it with economy." 


It is an old adage that " you can't squeeze blood out of a turnip," 
nor juice either out of many of those you find for sale. There is all the 
difference in the world in the nutrition one derives from good or from 
bad vegetables. You might eat a cart-load of the shriveled-up, dry, 
coarse and spongy kind, and you'd remain as thin as a rail, while good, 
nutritive vegetables make one fat as well as healthy. This is why the 
stalls Nos. 30 and 31 California market of Brown & Wells are so liber- 
ally patronized. Persons buying there once never go elsewhere there- 
after, because they get there the worth of their money. At five o'clock 
in the morning may be seen the best people in the city, including all our 
hotels and boarding-houses, making their selections of green peas, string 
beans, onions, celery, asparagus, young sweet corn, radishes, cucumbers, 
lettuce, oranges, strawberries, cherries and indeed the whole list of fruits 
and vegetables that make life worth living. Brown & Wells certainly 
understand this business, and are now reaping the rewards of their exper- 
ience. Drop in and see them.

[From the San Francisco Chronicle, July .'/, 1888. j 
The Bancroft building contributed its share towards the entertainment 
of the teachers, the Bancroft Company having kindly thrown open its 
large and elegant music-room to the Teachers' Aid Society of San Fran- 
cisco, and also furnished rooms for the Yolo county (Cal.) delegates and 
the Michigan delegation. 

They have also put forth their best efforts to entertain the teachers in 
every way, in supplying tickets to the panorama, making up theatre par- 
ties, and driving parties to the Park, Presidio and Cliff House. On Fri- 
day their party consisted of two four-in-hands and two rockaways — in all 
twenty-five or thirty were driven to the Presidio, Sutro Heights, Cliff 
House, Park and back again, leaving the Palace Hotel at 9 o'clock and 
returning in time for lunch. Another driving party will leave the Han- 
croft building at 1 p. m. to-day. 

[From the San Francisco Call, July 22, rSS'S.\ 
The Bancroft Company has aided very materially in entertaining the 
teachers. They have placed their piano rooms at the disposal of the 
Teachers' Mutual Aid Society, and have furnished the Yolo and Michi- 
gan delegates with headquarters. The members of the firm have also 
put forth their efforts privately, and have supplied tickets to the panorama, 
and made up theatre and driving parties to the Cliff House and Park. 
Yesterday a party of twenty-five were driven in two four-in-hands and 
two rockaways to the Presidio, Sutro Heights, Cliff House and Park.

Handbook of the Lick Observatory. By Ldward S. Holden, LL.D., 
Director of the Observatory. 16 mo. 75cts. 
(lives all the information which will be of value to the many visitors 
to the Lick Observatory, which possesses the largest and most powerful 
telescope in the world, and which is situated in one of the wildest and 
most romantic portions of California. Besides the useful and necessary 
information of a mere guide-book, the work contains a sketch of the life 
of James Lick, the history of the Lick Observatory, the Great Lick Re- 
fractor, the principal observatories of the world, and interesting and pop- 
ular accounts of the various astronomical instruments, and of the way 
in which they are made and used. 

Nerve Waste. By H. C. Sawyer, M.D., 12 mo. paper 50 cents, cloth 
75 cents. 
Is a timely volume of practical information concerning nerve impair- 
ment and exhaustion in our heated, hurried, modern life. Causes, 
phases and remedies are given for the assaults on the nervous constitu- 
tion which abound, as if by conspiracy, in our day. The author is an 
ex-surgeon of the United States Army and member of the Medical Soci- 

ety of the State of California, and has the latest and most approved ideas 
of his profession, to the effect, for instance, that its office should be rather 
to care for the health than to cure the diseases of the community, to pre- 
vent sickness more than to medicate the sick. If the nervously afflicted 
cannot get relief by putting work in the place of worry, or of excessive 
pleasure, rest and good air and food in the place of foul air, excitement 
and high living, they may be aided so to do by such a sensible book as 
this, which is the next best thing, perhaps, to the sight and sound of a 
good doctor.

The first object that strikes the visitor to the Brooklyn Tab 
the immense organ. Promptly at 7:15 o'clock the organist runs his fing- 
ers over the ivory keys, and plays two or three selections. At the exact 
moment of 7:30 Doctor Talmage walks on the platform. His black 
broadcloth frock coat is thrown open. A turn-down collar encircles his 
neck and a black tie covers his snowy shirt front. He drops into a blue 
plush chair, and a moment is spent in prayer. Then he adjusts his glasses 
to his eyes and opens his Bible. The organ peals forth, "Praise God 
From Whom All Blessings Flow." A stout, well-built man steps on a 
small platform and waves his right hand. In his left he holds a silver cor- 
net. This he puts to his mouth and leads the vast audience in son;,;. 
There is no choir or quartette in the Tabernacle. Trie singing is entirely 
by the congregation. After this Doctor Talmage steps forward. The 
peal of the organ has hardly died away before he announces his Bible 
reading. He holds the good book in his right hand, close to his face. 
His left hand steals around to his back and clutches nervously at his 
coat-tail. He begins in a well-rounded but not musical voice. The 
vast audience is hushed ir. expectancy. The fall of a pin could be! 
Slowly the preacher proceeds. It is th • ever delightful story of Ruth 
that he has selected. He reads sentence after sentence, and in a conver- 
sational way injects comments until the old story that all the world has 
laughed and cried over is invested with a new light and a new meaning. 
After this another hymn and then the collection. As the pennies, dimes 
and quarters jingle musically together in the collection boxes, the <or- 
netist plays again. The great church is by this time full to overflowing. 
There isn't standing room anywhere. Massive chandeliers light up the 
building perfectly, and the stained glass windows make a pretty and effect- 
ive background. Then the sermon begins. The preacher comes down 
to the front of the platform without notes or even a book in his hand. 
He doesn't use a table or pulpit. He stands alone. Every eye is on 
him. He gives out his text in a clear, loud, ringing voice, and repeats 
it twice. He usually begins the sermon by a hasty word picture of the 
scene where the text is laid, or by an anecdote. The' sermon lasts forty 
minutes. It is full of vigor and earnestness. Indeed, that is the chief 
characteristic of Talmage on the platform. He is in earnest. He talks 
quickly, nervously. He paces up and down the platform, and now tells a 
story in a low, sweet voice, and again he belches forth like Vesuvius, and 
makes the chandeliers rattle with the sound of his voice. At times he 
is intensely humorous. Again, he has the audience in tears. Again, 
he is so dramatic that the conviction forces itself upon you that if he had 
taken to the stage, instead of the pulpit, he would have made a great 

" What words did the Master use when the winds and waves lashed 
Galilee into a fury ? " he shouts. 

He steps back a half-dozen feet, and for a moment there is silence. 



Then he comes rushing down the platform like a tornado until he reaches 
the very edge. His hands are uplifted. He turns his face to the ceiling 
until his mouth is on a straight line with his ears, and in a pleading voice 
says, softly, musically: " Peace I" 

Quick as a flash his hands come down. His face has lost its sweet- 
ness. His voice is changed and harsh, and the sentence is completed by 
an awful and intensely dramatic yell: " Be still ! " It is the voice of 
authority. Galilee is stilled. There are "Ohs" in the audience, and a 
man in a pew in front of me leans over to his companion and whispers: 
" I never understood the meaning of that sentence before." 

The vast audience never loses interest. It is an audience made up of 
fully two-thirds of men between the ages of twenty-five and thirty-five. 
They belong to all walks of life. Some are students, others are actors 
and playwrights, young ministers, bankers, brokers, lawyers and store- 
keepers. They laugh at the anecdotes, and they cry and they listen rev- 
erently, tenderly, to the manly pleading to come to Jesus. 

The preacher knows every lute string in the human heart. He draws 
magnificent pictures in words, but he never forgets to send home solid 
truths. It is like a panorama. The curtain is rising and falling on re- 
splendent pictures. They dazzle the listeners. The eye is soothed and 
the ear charmed. The big clock in the rear of the church points to nine. 
Not a soul moves. The sermon is nearly over. Look ! the last picture 
is shown ! It is Gethsemane ! There is the Mountain, the Cross and 
the Saviour of Men !

As a mother was arraying her squalling infant in its richest robes, its 
little brother exclaimed, " If here ain't a fancy dressed bawl!" 

A smart youngster, on hearing his mother remark that she was fond 
of music, exclaimed, "Then why don't you buy me a drum, mama?" 

A boy who was told to confine himself to strong physical diet, took 
to soda water, as he thought that was the most fizzica/ thing he knew of." 

The little daughter of a clergyman, onbeingasked if he ever preached 
the same sermon twice, replied, after a moment's thought, " Yes, I think 
he does, but I think he hollers in different places." 

The " Daisy Train " had just rolled into the station, and Charley 
stood listening to the sound of escaping steam. Then turning to his 
father, he said, '• Papa, the engine's all out o' breath, ain't it ? " 

" Why, Sammy," said a father to his little son, " I didn't know your 
teacher whipped you." "I guess," replied Sammy, " if you'd been in 
my trousers you'd know'd it ! " 

Some one gave little Augustus two toys. " I'll give this one to my 
dear little sister," he said, showing the largest. "Because it is the pret- 
tiest," said his delighted mother. " No," he replied, " 'cause it's broke." 

" Are you brothers? " asked a gentlemen of two little boys. " Yes, 
sir." " Are you twins ?" " Yes, sir." " How old are you ? " "Amos 
is three, and I'se five," was the astonishing answer. 

"Don't you wish you was a big man? " said one little urchin to an- 
other. " K'rect I do, I'm just dyin' to be big enough to get shaved, an' 
have one of 'em barbers powder me all over an' squirt cologne juice at 
me," was the reply. 

A schoolboy read that " the Duke of Wellington was always coolest 
when on the point of attack," exclaimed, "Well by gun! He must be a 
queer fellow. I never saw a chap that was coolest when on the point of 
a tack ! " 

A certain gentleman recently lost his wife, and a young miss of six, 
who came to the funeral, said to his little daughter of about the same 
age, " Your papa will marry again, won't he ? " " O, yes," was the reply, 
" but not until after the funeral." 

A little fellow turning over the leaves of a scrap-book, came across 
the well-known picture of some chickens just out of their shell. He ex- 
amined the picture carefully, and then, with a grave, sagacious look, 
slowly remarked, " They came out 'cos they was afraid of being boiled." 

On a rainy morning a small boy, who had exhausted all his excuses 
for not putting in an appearance at school, opens the door and says to 
the astonished master, " Sir, my ma says I can't come to school to-day, 
it's raining too hard." 

An observing five-year-old boy inquired of his mother, " Do men 
love tobacco, mama?" " I think not," she replied. "Well, I thought 
they didn't," responded the youngster, " for after they take a bite I see 
'em keep trying to spit it out." 

"Will the angels come down for me in a chariot and horses when I 
die? " asked a little boy of his Sunday-school teacher. " I guess so, if 
you are real good," said the teacher. The little fellow's eyes sparkled 
with anticipation as he eagerly exclaimed, "And oh, do you think 
they'll let me sit on the front seat and drive?" 




A. Davis, Gen. Supt. Quebec Division Canadian Pacific Railway Co. 
— We shall never forget Monterey and its matchlessly beautiful Hotel 
del Monti-'. We cannot express our admiration for the magnificent and 
paradise-like grounds about the hotel and the seventeen-mile drive. We 
were favored with very fine weather, and after having seen most of the 
civilized world, both in Europe and on the continent of America, I am 
:d to say Del Monte is the most superb and the most beautiful 
place I have ever seen. — AVith its heavenly climate, which is so invigor- 
ating and pleasant to live in, I cannot help but think of it daily since my 
return. I am really feeling blue after having been through your country. 
The climate of California, and especially of Monterey, is so magnificent 
and enticing that I fear very much it will be a long time before I can 
again be satisfied with Canada. 

Edwin Booth. — This is the brightest, cleanest and prettiest place I 
have ever seen. Nothing can compare with it. 

[os'eph Pulitzer, editor and proprietor N. V. World. — The charms 
of the hotel and climate at Monterey have not been exaggerated — they 
cannot be. Del Monte has no equal. 

Hon. Ben Wood, editor and proprietor A". )'. News. — I should never 
have believed that such a beautiful place existed, had I not come out 
and seen for myself. 

Tin Marqi is of Queensburv. —There is no place in the world so 
beautiful and attractive as the Hotel del Monte and its gardens, and its 
seventeen-mile drive. Nature and art have done the best they could 


Don Camkron. — I got great relief while in California. Its winter cli- 
mate is lovely, and spicy, and healing. California abounds in charms 
and surprises, and its greatest, and the one we shall remember the long- 
est, is the Hotel del Monte at Monterey. 

The late General Geo. B. McClellan. — I shall never cease to 
think of the beauties of the Hotel del Monte and its lovely grounds. 

Mrs. James Brown Potter. — I have never been so fascinated with 
a place as with Del .Monte, and my only regret is that I could not have 
staid longer. I shall never forget any of its beauties or other attractions, 
the hotel itself, the grounds, the flowers, the lawns, the trees, the sev- 
u-mile drive, and the delirious warm salt-water baths at the pavilion. 
Who ever could forget such a fairy spot? 

Mary E. Blake, in " On the Wing." — The three or four days we 
spent at Monterey made altogether the pieasantest memory we had of 
California. The place itself is hard to classify because of its exceeding 
loveliness. We have nothing at home that approaches the exquisite set- 
ting of this exquisite house. The Pacific, all along this coast, wears con- 
stantly that dazzling sapphire blue, which we see at home only at special 
times; the sky carries out the same superb color with a glow and depth 
of sunshine superadded, which is almost too brilliant for belief. 

"George, who is your family physician?" "Dr. Smoothman." 
"What, that numbskull? How does it happen you employ him?" 
"Oh, it's some of my wife's doings. She went to see him about a cold 
in her head, and he recommended that she wear another style of bonnet. 
Since that she won't have any other doctor." 

"Riches take unto themselves wings and fly away," said the teacher; 
"what kind of riches is meant?" And the smart bad boy at the foot of 
the class said he "reckoned they must be ostriches." And the only 
sound that broke the ensuing silence was the sound that a real smart bad 
boy makes when, without saying so in just so many words he seeks to 
convey — and usually does convey — the impression that he is in great 

A blank crop report was sent out by a paper for the farmers to fill 
out, and the other day one of them came back with the following written 
on the blank side in pencil — "All we've got in this neighborhood is 
three widders, two school-ma'ams, a patch of wheat, the hog cholera, 
too much rain, about fifty acres of taters, and a durn fool who married a 
cross-eyed gal because she owns eighty sheep and a mule, which the 
same is me, and no more at present." 

"Oh, my child, how did your face become so bruised ? Come to 
mama and tell her all about it." "I — I — I was over 'cross the r-o-a-d 
playin' with Mrs. Howe's little g-i-r-1 — boo-hoo-oo-oo!" "And did she 
hurt you like this ? " " Y-y-y-y-c-s." "Well that was very naughty of 
her. What did sh&" do to little Georgie ? " "Sh-sh-she knocked me 
do-o-w-n, an-an-and then she hit m-e wi-with a b-r-i-c-k, and pounded 
me wi-with a b-r-o-o-m-s-t-i-c-k." "Oh, dear ! What a terrible child! 
Well, don't cry any more, Georgie. What were you doing when this 
happened?" "Pl-pl-playin' w-we w-a-s m-a-r-r-i-e-d ! " 


Old man (from the floor above) — Is that young man still in the parlor, 
Clara? Young man (nervously) — Yes, sir; but he is trying to get away. 
— Harper's Bazar. 

Bostwick (who has been pleasantly refused) — "Is this final, Miss 
Daisy ? " Miss Daisy (who is coy) — Y-yes, excepting that I always add 
a postscript." (And he got her.) — Tid-bils. 

Browns — Gad, Jack, what do you want of that sheet of postage stamps? 
Why, you've got ioo there! Joans — Well, you see, I've just completed 
a poem, and I may — er — send it to more than one paper. — Town Topics. 

Wife — You say you shot this duck yourself, John ? I can find no 
marks on it. Husband (who hadn't thought of that) — Well — er — my 
dear, the bird was very high up, you know, and perhaps the fall killed 
it. — Life. 

Young Featherly (waiting for Miss Clara) — "And so your sister ex- 
pected me to call this evening, did she, Bobby?" Bobby — " Yes sir, I 
guess she did. I heard her tell ma that she had set the clock an hour 
ahead. " — Texas Siftings. 

Judge (to small boy on witness stand) — " Little boy, do you know 
where you'll go to if you swear to what is not true ?" Small boy — "Yes 
sir; I'll go to the Legislature. That's what my pa did." — Washington 


"Ciood-by wifey; if I am detained by business and not able to come 
home to dinner, I'll send you a telegram." Wife (frigidly) You needn't 
take that trouble. Here it is. I took it out of your pocket a while ago. 
— Texas Si/tings. 

Young wife (exultantly) — I made that pound cake myself, darling. 
Husband (hefting it) — Is that so ? Young wife — Yes, darling, what do 
you think of it ? Husband — I think, dear, you have made a mistake in 
the name. It ought to be ton cake.-^ Washington Critic. 

"See here, neighbor, do you know that this duet playing on the piano 
by your daughters is getting to he quite tiresome? Can it be checked 
in some way?" " I'll tell you what to do — marry one of them. That 
will put a stop to it directly." — Fliegende Blatter. 

Magistrate (to prisoner arrested for assault) — You admit, then, that 
you pulled your landlord's nose? Prisoner — Yes. Magistrate — Don't 
you know that you had no right to do that? " No, sir; if I had no right 
to pull his nose he would have had it down in the lease." — .A 7 . Y. Sun. 

Rafferty — If ye plaze, sor, will yez tell me phwat is the name av that 
thin ould man in the sojer clothes? Wiggins— Oh, that's Von Moltke 
the greatest fighter in the world. " Come off, come off, will yez! How 
can "a little dhried-up ould Doochman loik that sthand up a minute with 
John L. Sullivan ? "— Texas Si/tings. 

Mr. Ham (the tragedian) — " I think that the advice which Hamlet 
gives the player is unequaled. There is nothing the theatrical profes- 
sion should give more heed to." Friend — "Any better, Ham, than the 
advice, 'When the whistle blows look out for the locomotive?' " — N. Y. 

Condemned Criminal — " Is the scaffold in good order ?" Sheriff—" I 
believe it is." " And is the rope going to work all right ?" "Certainly." 
" There won't be a hitch of any kind, then ?" "Not a hitch." "That's 
just my luck ; the newspapers won't give me more than half a column 
unless I die in horrible agony." — Nebraska State Journal. 

Bjones— Ah, Witticus, good morning! You are looking blue; what's 
wrong? Witticus — Nothing very wrong. I made $150 writing. para- 
graphs last week. Bjones — I wouldn't be blue at that. Did you ever 
make as much as that before? Witticus — No; but it makes me feel as 
if I were overworking myself. I ought, by rights, to be tired ; but I'm 
not, and I'm afraid something is wrong. — Harper's Bazar. 

"So you've been fishing this afternoon instead of going to school, I 
hear?" said the old man, as he seated himself at the table, and glared 
birch rods at the boy. " Never mind, sir; you just wait until after sup- 
per. What have you got here, wife? I'm hungry as a wolf." " Brook 
trout, pa," hastily explained the boy; "I caught 'em." "That so?" 
said the old man, as he helped himself liberally. "But you mustn't 
neglect your education, my dear little boy; that will never do, you know." 
— Epoch. 




Let us have this thing clearly understood. The cigarette girl needn't 
go, but her picture must. 

Woman is mortally afraid of a mouse, they say, but a mouse-tache 
don't scare her a bit. 

The ideal wife gets out of bed, lights the fire, and has the breakfast 
prepared before she calls the ideal husband. 

An Eastern paper says that a young widow in that vicinity who writes 
well, " is training herself for an editor." Who is the editor she is train- 
ing herself for ? 

" How cruel and heartless people must be who kill these poor little 
pigs," remarked a lady who was dining off a sucking pig. " Pretty, in- 
nocent little things ! May 1 trouble you for a little piece more crack- 
ling, please." 

Fogg — "Fine looking girls those Turnbulls are." Bogg — "Yes. Met 
'em in the street to-day, and actually didn't know 'em," Fogg — "That's 
funny ; you've met 'em at every ball this year." Bogg — "Yes, but Fd 
never seen 'em dressed before." 

" Are your coats padded ?" asked Angelina, as her head reposed grace- 
fully on William's manly breast. "No; why do you ask ?" he inquired, 
fondly. "Because they are so much softer than Martin's coats, or 
John's either, for that matter." The engagement is broken. 

Guest — " Can't we compromise this matter?" Host — (whose daughter 
is sitting at the piano and about to murder "The Storm") — "What do 
you mean?" Guest — "Why, this musical treat your daughter is about 
to give us. You stay here ; I will go outside till the storm is over." 

" How did you come to get married ?" asked a man of a very homely 
friend. "Well, you see," he replied, "after I had vainly tried to win 
several girls that I wanted, I finally turned my attention to one that 
wanted me, and then it didn't take long to arrange matters." 

Willie — "Tessie, my yacht lies there. Say, will you now fly with me 
to distant lands ?" Tessie — " How silly you do talk, Willie. How can 
I fly without wings ? If you want to marry, say so, and have done 
with it." 

" There is one thing about a kiss," said a gentleman to his wife, "that 
makes life very dear to us men." "Oh I know what it is," was the 
reply; "it's a pair of pretty lips." " Yes, indeed, and the satisfaction 
a man has of knowing that the lady's mouth is tightly closed for a short 

The following testimonial of a certain patent medicine speaks for 
itself: " Dear Sir — Two months ago my wife could hardly speak. She 
has taken two bottles of your ' Life Renewer,' and now she can't speak 
at all. Please send me two more bottles. I wouldn't be without it for 
the world." 

The other day some poor fellow married a somewhat passe beauty, 
and one of his former acquaintances inquired of another how the newly- 
wedded pair were getting on. "Very indifferently," was the reply. 
" She's always blowing him up." " I'm not surprised at that," said the 
first, " Look at the amount of powder she carries about her." 

"You put your foot in it nicely to-night," said Mis. Sweetsdeech. 
" How is that ?" asked her hu.iband. "When you told Mrs. Fourthly 
that you were sure her husband would never go the way he sent other 
people." " Well, and what of that ?" " Why her husband is a preacher." 
"Great Scott ! I thought he was a sheriff." 

The London Inn says : Among the barmaids of the English restau- 
rant at the last International Exhibition at Paris was one especially pretty 
girl, whom the Parisian "mashers" of that period dubbed " Chitjne 
Betsy." Thinking to pay her a compliment, one of thern said : " Do 
you know, mademoiselle, that you speak French like an angel ?" " I 
beg your pardon, monsieur," replied she, "the angels speak English !" 

He (awfully spooney) — "Oh Miss Brown — Angelina, if I may call you 
so — you have lighted a flame in my heart which is consuming me, and 
which will utterly destroy me if you will not promise to become my 
wife !" She — " You need not be in the least alarmed I can assure you, 
Mr. Tomkyns !" He (delighted) — "Then you reciprocate my passion, 
and I may hope !" She — -"Oh no, Mr. Tomkyns ! what I meant was 
that I am sure you are much too green to burn, so that I need not be 
afraid of any flame whatever !" 

A lazy countryman, with the bibulous propensities of Rip Van Winkle, 
was persuaded by his wife to take his useless dog to the nearest market- 
town and sell him, as he cost as much to keep as a couple of pigs. 
Josh accordingly retired early one morning, and returned in the evening 
very " full up," but without Towzer. " Woife," he said, "I've sold 
thic there dorg." " Hav'ee, indeed?" she ejaculated, brightening up at 
the good news, " I'm dreadful glad on it; how much did ye get?" 
" Matter o' ten dollars," mumbled the old man. " Ten dollars ! What, 
for one dorg?" chuckled the wife, " baint I glad ; that'll a'most set me 
oop wi' winter clothes. Where's the money, Josh, ine darlin'?" 
" Money !" said Josh, slowly shifting his pipe to the other corner of his 
mouth, " I didn't get no money ; I took two bull-terrier pups, at five 
dollars apiece." 

Scene, (Examination in Mental Science.) — Professor — "How do you 
know that you know anything ?" Senior — "I don't know." 

Professor — "Whatmethod does man employ to express his thoughts?" 
Scholar (after mature deliberation) — "He habitually employs speech." 
Professor — "Right; but when he cannot employ speech, what does he 

do, eh? Scholar— "He -" Professor — "See here! Suppose you 

were a hundred miles away from some one you wanted to say something 

to, what then?" Scholar — "I would — I would " Professor — 

"Suppose you had to announce to your father that you had been plucked 
— had failed in your examination — what would you do, eh ? How 
would you announce it?" Scholar — "Oh, I'd write him a letter." 
Professor — "Go and write him one, then."

HE "LICK HOUSE" is one of San Francisco's splendid hotels. It was built 
by the celebrated millionaire, James Lick, in 1861, and is three stories in height. 
It fronts on Montgomery and Sutter streets. The location is not only the most 
central in the city, but the most convenient to amusements, art galleries, and other places of 
interest and business. It is essentially a family hotel, conducted on the European plan. The 
dining-room, eighty-six by sixty-eight, is the handsomest on the Pacific Coast, and is embellished 
with ten oil paintings by Denny, Hill, and Marple, while in corners are large mirrors of great 
beauty. In March, 1881, the building was entirely renovated, and a marble floor laid in the office, 
where stands a painting from the facile brush of Denny, representing " Outside of the Golden 
Gate." A massive marble stairway leads to the second floor. Each room has been completely 
refurnished, while the establishment boasts of every improvement that modern art and science 
can bring to bear in the management and comfort of a hotel.

Trinity Term opened January 5th, 1S8S. 

A cross old bachelor suggests that births should be announced under 
the head of new music. 

"Who is that grim, sad man, papa, 
Who wildly glares through space, 

With tumbled hair and drooping jaw 
And gaunt, cadaverous face?" 

" It is a worn-out funnyman 
Who vainly strives, my son. 

Before he dies to incubate 
His last and millionth pun."
